What about our kids and future generations
Former Australian Prime Minister and current Foreign Minister Kevin “747” Rudd in 2008
We must prepare for a low-carbon economy.
To delay any longer, to stay in denial as the climate change sceptics and some members opposite would have us do, is reckless and irresponsible.
For our generation, for our kids and future generations, we must act now.
Kevin “Carbon Bigfoot” Rudd in 2011
GLOBETROTTER Kevin Rudd has notched up a staggering 384,000km in overseas air travel since becoming Foreign Minister – the equivalent of flying to the moon.
And despite being the only cabinet minister to drive a fuel-efficient Toyoto Prius, his global carbon footprint amounts to 58 tonnes – equivalent to driving 13 Holden Commodores for a year.

A Dozen Global Warming Slogans
By Professor Bob Carter
For many years now, our media outlets have been awash with commentary about dangerous human-caused global warming. The coverage tends to move in spasms relating to events such as meetings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) or, as at present, to government efforts to introduce penal legislation against carbon dioxide emissions in the vain belief that this will “stop global warming”.
Given that carbon dioxide is indeed a greenhouse gas (albeit a mild and diminishingly effective one at currently increasing levels of atmospheric concentration), and that some human-caused emissions accrue in the atmosphere, the question of dangerous warming was a good one to raise back in the late 1980s. Since then, with the formation of the IPCC, and a parallel huge expansion of research and consultancy money into climate studies, energy studies and climate policy, an intensive effort has been made to identify and measure the human signature in the global temperature record at a cost that probably exceeds $100 billion. And, as Kevin Rudd might put it, “You know what? No such signature has been able to be isolated and measured.”
That, of course, doesn’t mean that humans have no effect on global temperature, because we know that carbon dioxide is a mild greenhouse gas, and we can also measure the local temperature effects of human activity, which are both warming (from the urban heat island effect) and cooling (due to other land-use change, including irrigation). Sum these effects all over the world and obviously there must be a global signal; that we can’t identify and measure it indicates that the signal is so small that it is lost in the noise of natural climate variation.

Global Warming Fraud Creates Third World Food Crisis
by John O’Sullivan
Climate Change Dispatch, May 12 2011
How saving the planet causes famine: the climate crisis melts away but global food shortage is legacy of the foolish rush to biofuels.
Evidence for dangerous, human-caused global warming was always slim, now it lies cruelly exposed both by a cruel blowback and it’s not just coming from within the science.
A far more devastating catastrophe is unfolding and it is entirely the product of the mad rush to biofuels: third world famine. Today a whopping 6.5 percent of the world’s grain has been stripped from the global food supply. That’s the kind of catastrophic cut in food supply that triggers a tipping point so that Third World hunger explodes into mass starvation. Why did it happen?

Prince Charles labeled Eco-Hypocrite as he arrives in the US to lecture on sustainability
Written by Ann McElhinney & Phelim McAleer
Not Evil Just Wrong, 02 May 2011
Prince Charles is the latest to be exposed as an eco-Hypocrite in our short filmseries.
The Prince is coming to the US this week to speak at Georgetown University about “sustainability” so we decided to see just how he lives up to his own standards.
We’ve made a short film that exposes just how hypocritical the Prince is as he lives a fabulous, luxury life whilst lecturing the rest of us that we have to live with less.
PRINCE CHARLES HYPOCRITE exposes the double standard that is at the center of so much environmentalism.
